David Michael Broom, DOB: 4-1-95, appeared in Jefferson County District Court on October 25 where he was sentenced to six years in prison for the vehicular homicide death of 21-year-old Anne Gibson, in June, 2017.
On June 24, 2017 the Colorado State Patrol was called to the area of 9880 Deer Creek Canyon Road, in unincorporated Jefferson County, in response to a two-car crash with a possible fatality. Mr. Broom, driving a Toyota Cressida, had been observed speeding and driving recklessly along Deer Creek Canyon Road, passing cars at high rates of speed. As he approached a curve in the road, Mr. Broom lost control of his car, crossed the double yellow line, and hit an oncoming Ford Explorer.
Accident reconstruction reports indicate he was traveling between 69-106 mph. The posted speed limit was 45 mph.
Anne Gibson was the passenger in the car driven by David Broom. She suffered fatal injuries. The driver of the Ford and his eight-year-old passenger received minor injuries.
“This is a tragedy that could so easily have been prevented,” said District Attorney Pete Weir, “Any vehicle can become a deadly weapon when driven recklessly, at high rates of speed.”
On August 21, Mr. Broom pled guilty to Vehicular Homicide – Reckless (F4); and two counts of Third Degree Assault (M1).
